The library aims to be a very practical ‘laboratory’ for teaching a whole range of subjects across the history, literature and culture of the early-modern period. We offer an opportunity for students to get a ‘hands on’ experience of early-modern print culture, history, literature, knowledge and information.
For small groups, tailored tours and ‘show-and-tell’ sessions can be arranged with library staff . Academic teaching staff can also make appointments to use library material in connection with their own teaching.
For larger groups, meetings and conferences, Marsh’s has a fully equipped interactive seminar room which can seat up to 44 people. Our full catalogue of almost 30,000 books and more than 300 volumes of manuscripts is available here .
